The Wolfsonian partners up with Anthony Bourdain to host an exclusive dinner inspired by steamships.
The 13th annual Food Network South Beach Wine and Food Festival along with the Azamara Club Cruises will be hosting an “Ocean Liner Dinner” on Friday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m.
Azamara Journey Captain Johannes Tysse along with author, chef, CNN host and commander, Anthony Bourdain, will be hosting the sold-out event.
The event brings together such acclaimed chefs as Daniel Boulud, Andrew Carmellini, David McMillan and Frederic Morin, Francois Payard and Eric Ripert.
It will showcase “an extraordinary five-course culinary feast” inspired by ocean liner menus from the Wolfsonian Collection, according to a press release from Leila Pedro, the Communications Manager for The Wolfsonian.
With a ticket price of $1,500, a select number of guests will experience exquisite meals and dishes accompanied by a glorious view of the ocean that only the Wolfsonian’s collection can deliver.
In a press release posted by Azamara Club Cruises, Larry Pimentel, the president and CEO of ACC said “It is an honor to represent modern day ocean voyages along with such esteemed chefs.”
All proceeds from the event will benefit The Wolfsonian-FIU Endowment Fund and FIU’s own Chaplin School of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
“Azamara Club Cruises is delighted to participate in this special evening which was inspired by Anthony Bourdain’s wish to curate a meal based on the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum’s fantastic collection of ocean liner menus,” Pimentel said.
